Crocheted Summer Pullover

Lion Brand® Microspun


14 sts + 12 rows = 4 inches in Seed St pat. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Crocheted Summer Pullover Reviewed by Helen Stauffer on 2013-06-19 *****
I made this sweater years ago and it still has been one of my favorite tops. The colors is great and the drape is fine! Mine is orange and off white stripes. It was easy to make too. I love it!
